E82 1M Coupe (2011 - 2012)
In many ways the spiritual successor to the E30 M3. Powered by a M derivitive of the N54 the inline six makes 340hp and giving the 1M a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds.

New here!

hey ladies & gents,

first post here.

proud owner of a new (to me) 1M. got her in really good condition-- 5,000 miles, never tracked or driven very hard. came with an AFE intake kit (the one with the two cone filters).

picked her up on January 1 (Happy New Year to me!) so only had her a couple of days.

several buddies of mine have 1M's, so am fairly familiar with the car. such a fun little thing.

am located in the Philippines BTW.

cheers!

Thanks for the welcome!

I've always loved the 1M; have several friends who have the car, and the combination of performance, size, (relative) affordability, and increasingly rare analog charm, make it pretty unique IMO.

my charge pipe blew already the other night, during a... "spirited" drive with a friend's A45 AMG. i've got one on order from HPI, but apparently they're on back order. luckily a friend had his stock one lying around, so the car will at least be able to run around while waiting a couple of weeks for the aftermarket one.

I'm so tempted to mod the car a bit, but it really is a great package as-is; if anything i'm thinking of Ohlins R&T's to tighten up the composure over lumpy surfaces.

this one's a keeper!
